I am in partnership with Smiley360 in this program for Pompeian.  I will be receiving products as a thank you for this post.  All opinions are my own.

I love creating new dips and sandwich spreads that are delicious and better for me than buy in a container. I try to use the best ingredients so I get the best flavor! Like using Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil to make an Herbed Cucumber And Yogurt Tzatziki Recipe

Herbed Cucumber And Yogurt Tzatziki

Sometimes, the boring gets well… boring. I get tired faster with my need for veggies if I am tired of the dip I use. But I don’t want to decrease the health value of the veggies by creating something high in fat! So this Greek classic is a perfect option to spruce up my veggies and even to spread on my sandwiches.

I found this dip on the Pompeian Recipe page and just changed a few things to make it more to my liking. I did not use the salt and pepper – I am trying to go lower sodium – and I did not add the chives. It did not change the taste much because the flavor really pops with the vinegar. Plus, the Extra Virgin Olive oil makes the dip smooth and creamy for dipping!

I used a really good Greek yogurt to start, added all of my veggies – I want to add bacon next time I make it, too – and then the vinegar and olive oil to stir. It took about 10 minutes with the chopping of the veggies and I could have eaten it with a spoon! The rich, creamy flavor had the crunch of the cucumber, a light flavor with the mint, and a little bite with the garlic and onions. I will definitely be making this again SOON and can not wait to see how else I can serve it!
